I grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota with my brother, sister and parents. I graduated from Osseo Senior High School. After graduating from Dr. Martin Luther College, Scott Anthony and I were married. We have 2 adult children, Christian and Gabrielle. We also have 2 dogs and a Russian tortoise. I have attended many colleges and taught in many settings from birth through high school, public, private and Christian in regular and special education. I like to read, watch movies, practice yoga and use technology. My favorite Bible passage is Ephesians 4:29 because we need to build each other up and my favorite hymn is the "Borning Cry" because it tells us how God is with us from birth until he welcomes us home to heaven.
